Canadian Nationals Washed Out
ON (July 24, 2006) – The weather front that washed out
Friday’s IHRA Canadian Nationals professional qualifying
sessions at Toronto Motorsports Park refused to cooperate
for Saturday’s scheduled racing as well. After hours
of steady downpour in Cayuga, IHRA decided to pull the plug
on the weekend’s event. The IHRA Canadian Nationals
have been rescheduled for the weekend of September 23-24.
“It’s unfortunate, but these are the realities
you have to face when you hold outdoor events. Mother Nature
does not always cooperate,” IHRA President Aaron Polburn
said. “We looked at the weather report for the rest
of the day today and tomorrow and decided things weren’t
going to work out. We’ll come back in September and
have a great event.”
Carl Spiering continues to lead, and is the defending Champion
in the chase over all other teams in the Torco Race Fuels
Pro Modified class earning points based on their final qualifying
spot at each national event. The top eight point earners will
have the opportunity to participate in the 2006 Torco Race
Fuels Pro Modified Shootout, which will be held in Martin,
Michigan at the Northern Nationals.
The next event on the 2006 eMax Drag Racing Series is the
Torco Race Fuels Northern Nationals, August 4-6, at U.S. 131
Motorsports Park in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
